While you were at work dreaming about vacation time, a bunch of gorgeous, feathered beauties headed to Trinidad for Carnival 2020. Sweet, sweet T and T held their annual 2-day fete full of the most vibrant costumes, live soca music, and nonstop dancing in the streets. 

If you know anything about the carnival, you know that less is more. Men and women don their teeny weeny bright bikinis, adorned with jewels, beaded tassels, and tons of feathers. This event is a cultural phenomenon that unites people from the West Indies with the rest of the world.

Trini native, Nicki Minaj showed up and showed out in an elaborate blue and purple ensemble. It’s not uncommon to see celebrities attend carnival celebrations. On this past season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta the ladies hopped on a plane to Toronto to ‘Jump and Wave’ at Caribana


If Trinidad and Tobago isn’t your top carnival destination, feel free to pick from the other cities that hold the annual fete. Across the globe, carnivals take place at Toronto’s Caribana, Miami’s Miami Carnival, Houston Carifest, London’s Notting Hill Carnival, Barbados’ Crop Over Carnival, and New York City’s Labor Day Parade. 

If you missed all the melanated beauty to hit the parade grounds, here are some of the most vibrant, festive looks seen during Trinidad Carnival 2020.
